North America is seeing a hiring boom in tech industry fintech roles

By Verdict Staff

North America extended its dominance for fintech hiring among tech industry companies in the three months ending December.

The number of roles in North America made up 44.8 per cent of total fintech jobs – up from 33.6 per cent in the same quarter in 2020.

That was followed by Asia-Pacific, which saw a two year-on-year percentage point change in fintech roles.

The figures are compiled by GlobalData, who track the number of new job postings from key companies in various sectors over time. Using textual analysis, these job advertisements are then classified thematically.

GlobalData’s thematic approach to sector activity seeks to group key company information by topic to see which companies are best placed to weather the disruptions coming to their industries.

These key themes, which include fintech, are chosen to cover “any issue that keeps a CEO awake at night”.

By tracking them across job advertisements it allows us to see which companies are leading the way on specific issues and which are dragging their heels – and importantly where the market is expanding and contracting.
